UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has launched another urgent appeal for funds to help fight Ebola after a United Nations drive for donations fell short of its target.

The UN chief said a $1bn trust fund he launched in September has received just $100,000 (£62,000) so far. Ebola has already killed about 4,500 people so far, mostly in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
